In 1992, the legendary McLaren F1 debuted and would go on to capture the production car speed record and status as one of the greatest cars of all time. When looking for engine suppliers for their groundbreaking car, the creators of the F1 originally wanted Honda, their Formula One racing partner, to provide the engine. When Honda declined McLaren and BMW teamed up to make history.
Now, 25 years later, the two companies are back together working on a joint project. According to Evo Magazine, BMW, McLaren and four other companies are being supported by the UK's government to improve the efficiency of the internal combustion engine. Maybe not as exciting as joining up to build the ultimate supercar, but who knows what kind of crazy tech will result from this iconic partnership.
